14/07/2022 – CLUB SILENCIO: Beauty Therapy
A Trans Pride Brighton fundraiser
Written by Juno Dawson
On 14th July 2022, we entered the immersive theatre experience of Club Silencio’s Beauty Therapy.
We expected the unexpected (and got it!) in this hair-raising tale of beautification gone very, very wrong. Macabre B-movie mayhem and vintage glam horror from Brighton’s most mysterious, seductive and immersive queer theatre group.
Described by Brighton Source as “unapologetically weird”, Club Silencio deliver memorable nights from the alternative edge of satire, strangeness and sex appeal.
28/05/2022 – 05/06/2022 – BRIGHTON FRINGE FESTIVAL: This is What the Menopause Looks Like
“This Is What The Menopause Looks Like” is an exhibition of portraits and interviews of 70 people from across the UK, funded by Arts Council England, presented and curated by Osborne & What.
After experiencing a difficult menopause herself, artist Catrin Osborne travelled the UK meeting, interviewing, and photographing people going through menopause. This process culminates in an exhibition of photographs and interviews of a cross-section of people from diverse communities and backgrounds: the participants (of various different ethnicities, class, gender status, or disability status) all detailing their unique experiences.
Also featured was video art by Tindara Sidoti, including recordings of people in Thanet’s views on what the menopause looks like; and a video made in response to participants involved in the project.
The private view launch event featured spoken word and comedy song performances by participants Karen Antoni and Carol Carter (aka Flick Ferdinando) about menopause.
Nominated/Runner up for “Brighton Fringe Exhibitions Award in Association with AOH“
16-22/05/2022 – BRIGHTON FRINGE FESTIVAL: Moral Panic
It’s 1984, and Charles Hawthorne is working as a film censor. It’s a turbulent time, with national hysteria around a gaggle of extreme horror films – branded the video nasties. Charles is taking it all in his stride though, and even sniffs a possible promotion. That is until there’s a new appointment at the board. An appointment of a female censor who turns Charles’ world upside down, and has murderous consequences….
